HONOLULU (AP) - An Oahu grand jury has indicted a 20-year-old driver involved in a fatal crash that killed his girlfriend, their young daughter and the driver's cousin.

Honolulu Deputy Prosecutor Chastity Imamura says Faaolataga Kitiona was intoxicated Dec. 28 when his car crossed the centerline of Farrington Highway and crashed head-on into a pickup near the Kahe Point power plant in Nanakuli.

State Circuit Judge Richard Perkins set Kitiona's bail at $25,000.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports the crash killed 18-year-old Talofa Mene, her daughter Kawehikulani Ribeiro-Kitiona and 19-year-old Sagato Prince Segi. Kitiona was critically injured.

Two women and two girls age 14 and 3 were in the pickup. They were taken to a hospital in serious condition.

Kitiona was indicted on three counts of negligent homicide and one of negligent injury.
